Welcome to #Monday – The #WeekendWasFast!

“In not stating the goal to the students and wording them so they are understandable… it is like a family going on a trip with Dad in the driver’s seat and him not sharing what the destination is or how long the trip is going to take. Dad knows where he’s going, but the rest of the family has no clue.”

Hey dad… where ARE we going? https://korbartwuhs.files.wordpress.com/2013/11/d476f-family_truckster.jpg
